An application form may not be as important as a resume for someone who is seeking a job, but if that specific form is filled out badly, the jobseeker will surely be experiencing problems. Believe it or not, a second interview is not possible with a bad application form. Even though there are several of these forms that a job recruiter will see, a badly filled-out one will surely stand out and not in a good way.



A first-time applicant must avoid committing such a mistake so that he will have a higher chance of getting his dream job. Listed below is a step-by-step pr
ocedure on how a fresh graduate can fill out a job application form the right way.



The first step is to read the document thoroughly before filling out the empty spaces. He will learn about the instructions that the employer requires in the form. Most employers ask for the same information written on the resume to be written on the other document. This step is very important to avoid making obvious mistakes which can result in the prospective employer becoming hesitant in hiring him. This is because anyone who can't follow simple straightforward instructions is a poor candidate for a position that entails a lot of responsibility.



The second step is to practice. A jobseeker can make another copy of the application form and practice filling it out. In this way, the applicant will be able to estimate the number of words that he can put into the boxes based on his penmanship. Practicing will also ensure that whatever is written on the form will make sense for him and the employer.



The third step is to remain consistent. This basically refers to consistency of data both on the application form and on the resume. An applicant must make sure that whatever information is written on the application form matches the ones printed on the resume. One important trait is being tested here and that is honesty. The jobseeker should be honest with all the information that he presents to the employer. Lying to the employer by providing false information can lessen the chances of an applicant to get his preferred job. The main reason behind this is the simple fact that once the recruiter finds out about the dishonest move, it will be hard for him to trust the applicant for other things and information within the company.



The fourth step is to never put in negative information. A jobseeker must keep in mind that the main goal of filling out an application form is for him to be scheduled for an interview. Writing negative information on the form will prevent him from achieving that goal. It is highly recommended for the applicant to be positive at all times. It is also important to jot down short but straightforward answers. He can provide the explanation for each answer during the interview.



The final step is to check the information that the jobseeker has written on the application form. This is important so that the applicant will easily spot the mistakes and correct them. This is also the best time to edit the information written on the application form.
